October 13 -- The Gospel is True

Hello Family!

This week has been pretty good. The spiritual highlight for me was  probably last Friday when we taught an investigator who has come to church a lot, and he has even attended seminary, but  he had never been taught by missionaries. We talked to him about our  purpose as missionaries, and we talked to him a little bit about  baptism, and he accepted the invitation to be baptized on November 2.  He seemed really excited when we talked to him about that. We asked  him why he likes attending the LDS church even though he was raised  Catholic, and he said it is because he can see that we only worship  Jesus Christ, and when he attends church he feels like all his  problems are gone. I'm happy about him.

We watched General conference last Saturday and Sunday. We had 4 investigators there  for the Sunday morning session.

I think this is the prettiest area I have served in so far, and the most rural. There are lots and lots of rice fields, and our area runs along a river, which is really pretty. There is an island on  the other side of the river, which is technically in our area, but we are not allowed to go there. P-days here are a lot less distracting than they were when I was close to Laoag because there is nothing here...except a palengke and some little stores. There are no malls or  supermarkets, so there aren't a lot of worldly things to distract us.

Well, that's about all for now. The gospel is true. Keep magtiising hanggang wakas!...I mean, keep enduring to the end :).  Mahal ko kayong lahat.

Love, Sister Boekweg
